Calories

How many calories can you guys take in each day with out gaining body fat? Of course I’m taking about a clean intake.

As for myself, I’ve found that I can take in about 3,000 and keep my body fat level stable. I’m at 5"7 and 170lbs, 5-6mm pinch on abs, weights x5 a week and cardio about 3-4 a week. 3,500 calories works good for me to “build” but with a little bit of fat gain each week. I won’t look “dry” at such a calorie intake though.
